Woodford County Courthouse - Versailles, Ky.

I love Woodford County. I hope someday to live there, but surprisingly, I'd never been to downtown Versailles (pronounced Ver-SALES). This was my last stop for the day, and as you can see in the picture the skies were starting to cloud up. I have to say the courthouse is pretty interesting. First off, its HUGE. It takes up the whole block, and there wasn't an inch of green space that I could see. A courthouse with no courthouse lawn, but, to each his own I guess. At least it eliminates any of the public forum/free speech concerns that surround courthouse lawns. Anyway, there are two sets of stairs that lead up to the doors from the sides, giving the courthouse a very imposing feel - very HALLS OF JUSTICE. I like it.
